After a successful 2018, Bunting Magnetics has reported that it received three more orders for its SSSC model stainless steel magnetic separators in January 2019.
UK-based Bunting Magnetics, a leading supplier of magnetic separators and metal detectors for the recycling, quarrying and mining industries, said that all three orders are for different customers with specific metal separation objectives.
“This is a fantastic way to start 2019,” said Dave Hills, head of sales. “Interest in the stainless steel magnetic separator has never been higher. We are continually undertaking tests for customers, which will undoubtedly develop into orders as we progress through the year.”
Bunting Magnetics’ stainless steel magnetic separator is equipped with an extremely high-powered magnetic head pulley to separate work hardened stainless steel. A standard magnetic separator removes strongly magnetic materials from the feed prior to passing over the SSSC. Commonly, an eddy current separator also removes all non-ferrous metals.
A vibratory feeder feeds the remaining fraction onto the conveyor belt of the stainless steel magnetic separator. As the material enters the strong magnetic field, weakly magnetic metals such as fragmented and work-hardened stainless steel, and even printed circuit boards, are attracted and separated.
All three stainless steel magnetic separators recently ordered have a 900mm-wide magnetic field.
“As well as these orders, we are working with recycling companies based across Europe on specific projects,” said Hills. “We are conducting many tests every week, with an increasing number of samples. It is a busy and exciting time for our technicians.”
